MFP 022: Dealing with Loss

Dealing with the loss of life is difficult for adults and for children.  Our generation is more poorly equipped than any other before us to deal with this issue, because we have been told that we are in control of our own lives, and this simply is not true.   As Catholics we have a the great gift of our faith to form our hearts and inform our minds so we can embrace the suffering that death brings.  In this podcast we share our own stories of loss and give some ideas for talking with your children about this issue.  This podcast ends with a special song written by a mother who suffered the loss of her child and God’s response to her.
